What To Expect

For thousands of years, people have enjoyed the cuisine from our local waters — the Mobile River, Mobile Bay, and the Gulf of Mexico.

On our Old Mobile Evening Tour, we will highlight these four dishes contributed to our palates by Mobilians as we walk through the centuries of cuisine on our way to five of Mobile’s best restaurants and eateries.
